    Servicemembers Civil Relief Act

    The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA) was amended substantially in
    2003. These changes are something your attorney must be familiar with, and
    working with a knowledgeable and experienced attorney can help you
    understand if the changes are applicable to you.

    In general, military servicemembers are protected when they have to be away
    from home due to the needs of the military and during those absences, they
    have civil protections. When they are unavailable, as defined by the Act, suits
    against them can be "stayed" or postponed for short or even long periods of
    time. There is no blanket rule and the decisions are made on a case by case
    basis. This includes divorce cases and paternity suits.
